Big Trouble Moment-Caldwell City Hall

A recently acquired real photo postcard.

"The governor's first errand that snowy afternoon was...."pages 35-54 (December 30,1905)

"The architectural vista at Seventh and Main inspired lofty comparisons. As plans for the new city hall were unveiled, the Tribune rhapsodized: 'The scene that will present itself to a person as he steps off the train will be the most beautiful in the city.' Aside from the hotel and the bank, 'the two most handsome' buildings in town, 'the city hall in the distance will remind [one]...of Trinity Hall, Boston.'"
--Big Trouble by J. Anthony Lukas

Hopefully some paved walkways if not streets were to come along soon. Click on Idaho Panoramas below and on the photograph to enlarge and see the City Hall far off in the distance as viewed from the Caldwell train station.
